Perhaps one of the most tiring yet fulfilling day so far. 

Been running here there and everywhere. Then again preparing for an event is and will always be the most tiring thing you could ever encounter. At least in most of the industry there is. Sometimes you just have to extend your efforts up to the extent of your job description, it’s being a team player. 😊

The Filipino Stereotypes

The Human Breed Blog

Love Karaoke

83 % of the Filipino women and 72 % of the Filipino men dream about becoming a famous singer… well, i just made these statistics up, but the actual numbers are probably not so far away from those fake statistics. Filipinos just love singing, not only in the shower, but also on the streets (I’ve seen it happen countless times), in the living room, alone or with friends or of course in the extended and so frequently happening Karaoke sessions.

Can get friendly with each other so quickly

Filipinos are generally very friendly, so it is so easy for two Filipinos who have just met to turn into instant friends, but more on that later in the Social Experiment ;).

So noisy when in a group

February 13 before 14

 

 

 

Just as when all seemed to be just an ordinary Thursday.

A typical, last working day of the week (for UAE) a heart warming activity was initiated by our company’s HR department. Always so dedicated in getting everybody within the company engaged with each other as colleagues and / or as friends.

APPRECIATION DAY as the call it.

It was a moment of surprise that even to simplest things you do everyday at work, someone is appreciating you as  a whole.

It was a moment of sharing what you feel towards the other. For so many years in my life, I have been celebrating Valentine’s day every 14th of February. But I never thought that 13th of February would be at any way better than the next day.

At work we tend to feel lazy at times. We tend to lose our temper at certain situation. I guess it really is just a normal thing in the corporate world.

But there is always something about you that is bound to be appreciated.

My life is not a book nor a novel written by a poet.

Al Hamra Village, Royal Breeze Ras Al Khaimah UAE

Nor is it a movie or a theatrical play written by a playwright.

My being is not a character performed by a well-known actress.

My being is not someone every person has to look up to.

My life is not a fairy tale for little girls to admire and desire to be like someday.

My life is nothing but an adventure in the jungle, a maze in a hidden paradise with bountiful things to treasure and learn from.

My being is nothing but a drafted dreamer gazing up the shootings stars in the night.

Waiting and patiently waiting. for a wish to be granted and dreams become nothing else but wonderful reality.

A COLLECTION OF FAILURES

Tonight, I joined two of my flatmates for a little run at the park.395b8a0274a511e1989612313815112c_73

There were so many people there, some are families, friends, workmates and such.

I saw this little bench and decided to rest for a while as I listen to music.

Here’s what bump into my mind;

Life for me and for a lot of people is a gift from God.

Life is that particular reason why I get to wake up each morning. Have a seat at the balcony as I have a cup of coffee thinking about so much that I wanted to do for the rest of the day.

Life is a gift we should not stain of any regrets. A gift to act on our goals and dreams.

As a person I do fail at so many things.

That’s me. A FAILURE. but I never run out of courage to get up. I am not ashamed of calling my self a failure because someday it’ll change. as what my favorite quote said,

“A COLLECTION OF FAILURES WILL THEN BE CALLED EXPERIENCES

THAT WILL ALL LEAD US TO SUCCESS.”

I may have wasted too many or too much chances in my past but now, I’m weighing all the chances and choices.

I have wasted my shot to top my class as a student. But I cannot waste this chance in learning from the classroom of the real world.

I may have wasted my chance to top the sales chart back to the days when I was working for an advertising company. But now, I’m putting on extra efforts to sell my credentials and experiences to different companies I can find.

I may have wasted the chance to be the best player of all time in taekwondo during my athlete days. But now, I’m running endlessly as fast as I can in the race of life and success.

I am not the best in this world at any aspect of life. All i know and believe that as long as I am willing to run this race. I can reach that finish line with no regrets. I may run fast, I may run slow. I may stop for a while but I won’t forget I am bound to finish something.

People may love me or hate me. Build me or break me. At the very end, it’ll be God’s decision to where I am rightful to be. As long as heartaches, heartbreaks, disappointments come my way. I will smile. For me they’re nothing but proofs of God’s presence by my side every single day I am blessed with.

I do not wish to be the richest person there may be. But I do wish that I provide well for the life and family I am gifted so well.

I do not wish for people to look up to me, but I pray the they simply appreciate all the choices I have made. I do not wish for people to idolize me, but I pray for them to see my worth and my hopes.

TRUMP; NEVER GIVE UP

COACH TRUMP: Make it happen in your life. 

One line I will never fail to remember every single day. From that very moment I was able to glance at each word that makes of it.

So simple yet overflowing of hope that someday, I will get to that certain point of my existence that I can make my family proud.

I was never a book reader so definitely I cannot call myself a bookworm as they call it.

In fact I can still remember during my grade school days wherein we were required to do book reviews for one of our class and we had to do tons of them for the whole academic year. We’ll I’m not encouraging anyone who will be able to read this and is going through the same requirement. But never, even once was I able to finish one whole book for any of my book reviews back then. (My apologies to my English Prof back grade school)

But this book had mark that end of me not reading any books.

This is Donald J Trump.

This book here is definitely something that did not only open my eyes to reading. But filled me with hopes and encouragement in my life as a whole.

I was able to relate everything that he said on this book not only because I was also engaged in a real estate industry but because he made every point so clear on general terms.

Believe me, If only I have the capacity to memorize the whole book i really would. Because it teaches what happened, what’s happening, and what may happen again. Not only to his own life but to everybody. Let me share to you some of it.

RECOGNIZE OPPORTUNITY ; even at the most awful circumstance of a day.

Think BIG ; Think CREATIVELY

At the very end here’s the TOP 10 great points according to him on which I will never protest nor disagree.

  1. Never give up; Don’t just settle in remaining within your comfort zone
  2. be passionate
  3. be focused ; shut out all the interference
  4. Keep your momentum ; LISTEN, APPLY & MOVE FORWARD
  5. see yourself VICTORIOUS
  6. be tenacious
  7. be LUCKY; the harder you work the LUCKIER you get
  8. Believe in yourself
  9. ask yourself; what am I pretending not to see?
  10. look at the SOLUTION; not the PROBLEM

I don’t want to pretend like I’m the Miss Know-all girl. Cause I’m not.

Especially with the guy responsible of this book but perhaps in any case this would be the exact same book you’d need to get all the encouragement possible.

Especially to a young person like me who is just starting to be exposed to everything there is in the real world.

I hope you’d have the same fun learning from this one. 🙂

 

BTW few more thoughts from the book.

PROBLEMS ARE OPPORTUNITIES IN DISGUISE

YOU CANNOT SOLVE A PROBLEM WITH THE SAME THINKING THAT MADE IT.

 

 

For all the times when love seemed to

For all the times when love seemed to be nothing else but unfair, hold on. For in the long run, there will always be something worth holding on. 

Unseen at the moment but perhaps someday. One day. Soon.

Cry out all the pain, heartaches and all the wounds. Shout out all the anger and let it be only until there. 

At the end of the day, never forgive. Regardless of how unfair all things were once or a few times more. For the healing of a wounded heart is always one forgiveness away.
